Vistria invests at the intersection of the public and private sectors. The Firm believes that this intersection creates a meaningful opportunity to drive value for the public sector through the use of private capital. Vistria focuses on opportunities that allow it to leverage the Firm’s unique mix of capabilities and capital to drive value for its investors and for the communities in which it invests. To that end, Vistria has always sought to invest in companies with a social value where it can scale for both financial success and maximum positive impact. While operating within its own SRI framework, no activity will be required, or investment decision made, that will be adverse to or inconsistent with the fiduciary and contractual duties owed by Vistria to its investors, partner companies and other constituents.
